he art of crafting shoes has been an important and sought after trade for centuries. Cobblers throughout history have formed leather into many shapes, from the thonged sandals of biblical times through the medieval pointed variety to today’s incredible selection of styles. As weddings evolved into lavish formal events, wedding shoes became essential for the entire bridal party, and shoemakers would be asked to create the most fashionable footwear. Many of the styles were adapted from those shoes worn first by royalty and members of the royal court and then the gentry would follow suit. The custom of tying a pair of shoes to the back of the wedding car prevails today.

Tuxedos are the preferred choice for formal or semiformal evening weddings, and are now a popular choice for afternoon weddings as well. A choice of single, or double breasted jackets with matching trousers (usually with side satin stripe) are available. Tuxedos come in a variety of fabrics and colours. Black is certainly the most popular; however this season dark brown and navy are an alternative option.White and ivory tuxedos remain appropriate for many occasions, especially for spring and summer weddings. 240 Just Weddings
